  • BC Will Regret Not Taking Avery Bradley

    Bradley got drafted by the celtics and raptors drafted Ed Davis who is a solid pick, but we clearly need some perimeter defense and Bradley is a guy who is gonna change a game with his defensive pressure. I guarantee in a couple yrs raptors fans will look back at this draft and say "HOLY SHIT WE COULD OF GOTTEN BRadley"

    I agree. Take a look at this scouting report:

    Offense: Incredibly quick, with a thick, stocky build. Thrives in transition and puts tremendous pressure on the defense. A very good ball-handlergreat elevation on his jumper, though, and seems to have made some strides in that area. Must not fall in love with it, as he tends to do at times. Has talent, and can put points on the board, but needs to mature and find the right situation.

    Defense: A ball-hawk who can really lock down when he puts his mind to it. Puts tremendous pressure on the defenselateral quickness, and the mentality to capitalize on it. Not smart enough on this end of the floor, though. Needs to do a better job reading screens, not gambling, and fouling less. Uses his hands a bit too much.
    After reading the scouting report, I agree that this is the player that the Raptors need. (Oh wait, this is Banks'.)

        Or you could be saying "Somehow we had the chance to draft Ed Davis and BC let him go, and drafted Marcus Banks II instead." Come on, Pretty much all GM's (except David Kahn) would take on Davis before Bradley

        Also, wow he has elevation on his jumper, you forgot to highlight where it says that its pretty bad he overuses it and also is a bad decision maker.

          I was only trying to emphasize his good points.

            Enough of this Bradley stuff. One guy posts a nice scouting report a few weeks ago saying that he might be a good fit for the Raps, and everybody is going gaga seeing the second coming of T-Mac. Give me a break, all scouting reports had him out of the lottery. If everybody thought he'll be so great, how come 18 teams passed up on him? He's a fkn C*tic now, I don't even want to hear about him anymore.

              This obsessive man-love for Bradley by some Raptors fans is far worse than any support I have ever had for Amir Johnson.

              I like Ed Davis' upside and if Johnson stays with the Raptors I think the drafting of Davis will benefit the Raptors, Davis and Johnson. Davis and Johnson will push each other in practice and on the court for minutes and as a result both of their games will improve to their benefit and to the benefit of the Raptors and enjoyment of Raptors fans.

                  Well you already see the bigger picture, the practice and game chemistry needs to be addressed on this team in whatever way possible. More members for the YoungGunz.

                      bRyan is a changed man because if it were the same draft last year I bet he would have taken Bradley who is a solid pick I belive. bUt, he shouldn't have picked him that high in the draft. this year he thought about who the best palyer was and snatched him up.

                        This feels like Ed O'Bannon all over again. People get their heart set on someone and don't give anyone else a chance. I think that draft worked out ok.....

                          I was as big a Bradley homer as there was pre draft, but there is no alternate universe where you take him over Davis. Bradley was as high risk, high reward as any player not named Whiteside and now that he is in Boston his career will likely sputter.

                          The guy is not going to contribute right away and easily could find his way back to the raptors when him and Rondo start quarreling over turf. He honestly didn't make a ton of sense for the raptors anyways, you need to pair him with a tall point guard or stud at the 2 and we have neither.

                          The reason the raps never worked out Davis or why he wasn't on anyone's radar was because no one ever imagined he would fall to 13. They didn't work out John Wall either. I haven't read much draft analysis yet, but I guarantee they are sacrificing virgins in BC's honor over at ESPN.

                            Not to disparage Rondo's talents too much but he still has an achilles heel as an all-tool pg. And that is his jump shot (reg. and 3 pt) at will. Teams will leave him open/give him space to protect against his drive. His pts come mostly from his explosiveness to the rim, floaters and fast breaks. If the Celtics lose Allen (or do not replace with a viable 3 pt option) watch for Rondo not to do as well. He had a solid cast around him. He also built muscle since draft day.

                              If I've said it once, I've said it a dozen time. Bradley is an undersized SG who doesn't finish well and avoids contact and has no PG skills. He basically has one really good attribute, and that's his defense. And the Raptors already have Marcus Banks.
